People’s Choice Hospital Seeks to Rescue Peninsula Hospital Center…and its Underserved Community

Chicago-Based Group Led by Practicing Physicians Arrives in a Time of Need

 
PRLog - Apr. 3, 2012 - Peninsula Hospital Center of Queens, NY has played a central role in the medical care and general well being of countless local residents since 1907. The acute care facility and teaching hospital is a literal lifeline for its often-underserved community. Now, after periods of financial struggle and administrative turnover, Peninsula is teetering on the brink of closure. Unfortunately, stories such as these are becoming far too common in our urban centers, where lack of adequate medical resources directly impact the most at-risk citizens.

Fortunately in this situation, hope is on the horizon in the form of the People’s Choice Hospital group. Based in Chicago and spearheaded by practicing physicians, the group represents not only vital capital infusion needed to pull Peninsula out of bankruptcy, but also a team of medical and administrative professionals needed to turn what many consider a lost cause into a shining example of what a modern medical center can be.

People’s Choice Hospital understands the daily challenges of operating a high volume, under-funded medical center in a large urban community. Its team has worked closely with individual patients, nurses, specialists, and hospital administrators at these sorts of facilities for many years. With a unique formula for successful hospitals, they are qualified to transform a dire situation into a valuable resource for the local community.

Ongoing protests by local residents and community organizers are being held on and around the hospital campus. The level of passion seen in the advocates and the palpable fear on the faces of local residents underscores how important this resource is to the community.  The People’s Choice Hospital team realizes the far-reaching implications of Peninsula’s potential closure, and are confident that their proposal will be embraced by local citizens and the hospital trustees who serve their interests.

Dr. Guterman, who leads the People’s Choice Hospital team, will be presenting the proposal to the public on Tuesday, April 3, 2012 at 7pm ET at the Knights of Columbus Hall – 333 Beach 90th Street in the Rockaways.
